Wont deny, kind of mad he didn't announce the "big act" but he does make a valid point about going on after Midtown in NJ

Enjoyed this interview last night and gave it another listen today. I really want more details on what walls had to be broken down to get Midtown back together. Hopefully Gunz can get this with his interview with one of the members Sunday. I like John D's honesty and outlook on this years festival.

Rain. They had to cancel some sets because of a huge storm. The muddy conditions also ruined Randall's Island for a moment.

The Midtown crowd is going to be pretty empty for a Skate and Surf / Bamboozle headliner. Probably smallest ever.

Me too. He was able to admit that last year was a disaster. But he also realizes that he can't compete with anything in NYC.

And since I have already bought my ticket, it is reassuring that both Midtown and Saosin w/ Anthony are one off performances.

He should just get The Sound of Animals Fighting and turn into an Anthony Green weekend.

Ehh, youd be surprised. I been a Midtown fan for years and never seen them Live so they become something to see. As dumb as it may sound if it was Taking Back Sunday, Fall Out Boy, or Panic At The Disco or any other headliners who i've seen numerous times you might be more likely to skip their set. The fact its someone new/old who hasn't done a show in NJ in years makes it a lot more appealing IMO. Plus its not a headliner that teeny boppers will go crazy for lol so I might enjoy a set without having girls next to me screaming for no reason.
